Coffee dyeing was also successful, and I have some pretty yarns for my efforts.
Washed and dried yarns below, primped for their photo-shoot. None of them are divas, and they got along famously.
Top row, left to right are alum, brass, and copper mordanted yarns. Bottom row, left to right, and iron: pre-, pre-and post-, and post-mordanted only:
As with the rosemary yarns, I’m really happy with these.
Particularly, brass, below left, and iron pre-mordant (perched Queen of the Hill) are my two favorites, the brass because of its rich coffee-with-cream color, and the iron, like the iron rosemary, for its rich charcoal. Guess I really like charcoal. Who knew.
Playful, rich, deep, alive. Like me, sixteen years sober. I am so blessed. I am so lucky.
